1984 anti-Sikh riots convict Sajjan Kumar mentioned before the court of Chief Justice of India SA Bobde seeking an urgent hearing of the bail applications on the ground of ill health. He is currently undergoing his jail sentence for his involvement in the case. News agency ANI reported.

Earlier, the court had listed the matter for April 14.

The top court last month had refused to grant interim bail to former Congress leader Kumar. The court had said it will hear the bail plea in May during the summer vacation.

A bench comprising Justices SA Bobde, BR Gavai and Surya Kant had also said it will consider medical report from the AIIMS on the health condition of Kumar after completing the hearing in the Sabarimala reference matter pending before it.

Sajjan Kumar has been convicted in a case relating to the killing of five members of a family in Raj Nagar following the assassination of Indira Gandhi on October 31, 1984.

Senior Advocate Vikas Singh, appearing for Sajjan Kumar, had submitted that he has been going through several medical ailments and had lost nearly 13 Kilograms in jail.

Kumar was awarded life imprisonment by the Delhi High Court on December 17, 2018, after it set aside the lower court order that had acquitted him of the charges.
